**Introduction:**

In garments sector, an order profit is totally depends on **fabric consumption of a garments**. So, it’s a mandatory duty for a garments merchandiser to make a correct fabric consumption of that order. As its importance on **garments merchandising**, today I will present a fabric consumption calculation method for woven bottom garments.

**Fabric consumption calculation method for woven bottom:**

Before going to the fabric consumption of a woven bottom garments, a **woven merchandiser** should identify all the parts of that.

**Normally, a woven bottom consists with the following parts-**

- Body parts,
- Pocket,
- Pocketing Fabrics,
- Belt Loop.

**Suppose,**

The Buyer “Nautica” forwards a “Woven Denim Bottom” item order (10000pcs) to you with the following specification.

**Follow the below measurement chart.**

**Now, calculate the required fabric consumption for the above order.**

**Solution:**

**Fabric consumption for the woven bottom will be discussed in the below in part by part:**

**Let,**

Fabric width- 56”

*(Here, the given fabric width is 56”, during sewing, we cannot use the edge of a fabric. So, all time we must exclude 1” from the given fabric width. So, now the fabric width is 56-1 = 55”)*

Wastage- 10%

*(Normally, we add 10% wastage for the regular denim fabric but in case of Spandex fabric, it goes up-to 25%)*

**During calculating the fabric consumption of woven fabric, all time we will use the following formula, **

**1. Fabric consumption for the Body Parts:**

Here, we will apply the following formula (Per dozen),

Now,

**Body Width,**

= 1/2 Thigh with sewing allowance

= 20

Now, from equation (A), we get-

= 22.30yds per dozen………………………………………………… (B)

So, fabrics needed for the body parts is 22.30yds per dozen.

**2. Fabric consumption for the Back Pocket (2pcs):**

Here, we will apply the following formula (Per dozen),

= 1.36yds per dozen………………………………………………………………..(C)

So, fabrics needed for the back pocket is 1.36yds per dozen.

**3. Fabric consumption for the Pocket Bag (2pcs):**

Here, we will apply the following formula (Per dozen),

= 2.72yds per dozen……………………………………………… (D)

So, fabrics needed for the pocket bag is 2.72yds per dozen.

**4. Fabric consumption for the Belt Loop (5pcs):**

Here, we will apply the following formula (Per dozen),

= 0.12yds per dozen……………………………………………. (E)

So, fabrics needed for the belt loop is 0.12yds per dozen.

Now,

**By adding the equation B, C, D and E we can get the total fabrics consumption for the above order (per dozen)-**

= (B +C + D + E) yds per dozen

= (22.30 + 1.36 + 2.72 + 0.12) yds per dozen.

= 26.5yds per dozen.

So, total fabric consumption for the above order is 26.5yds per dozen.

And,

**Total fabrics consumption** for 10000pcs (833.33dozen) garments is (26.5 × 833.33) = 22083.25yds per dozen.

**Just wait for few seconds….!!!!**

*I know you are too much angry now due to see the calculation result. Try to understand, I have just tried to show the calculation method only. I didn’t bother on calculation result. Yes, I should do that by using actual numbers but I didn’t. So, please don’t misunderstand me. Follow this method after receiving your “actual measurement chart”. Hope you will understand me. Thanks.*

Nice still explain the wash care lables details

Yes….

Just keep in touch………..

Will get that very soon………….

Dear,

Plz attention here….

The person who have confusion about the calculating result. i will say something for u now…..

Thank u all for your fantastic support………@For all

Brother that means, per garment consumption is more than 5yds. Is it possible?? Per garment consumption would be at best 2 yds, if I m not wrong. Hope your valuable comment

very nice sholution for bottom consumtion . thanks………………………………………………………………………….

Very essential to lesson.

Thanks.

Very useful

thanx for this solution
